PhD: Inorganic Materials, University of Liverpool

Experimental Discovery of New Inorganic Materials at the Department of Chemistry, School of Physical Sciences, Faculty of Science and Engineering (University of Liverpool)

Supervisors: Prof Matthew Rosseinsky Dr John Claridge

Research area: Chemical Sciences


New inorganic materials are needed to advance technologies such as batteries for electric vehicles and grid storage, and to develop basic science. The project is an exciting opportunity for the experimental synthesis and detailed characterization of new inorganic solids.

Research Area:

The project will combine synthetic solid-state chemistry, advanced structural analysis (crystallography) and measurement of physical properties, with the opportunity to focus on one or more of these aspects during the project. The project will concentrate on the discovery of new bonding types and structures in inorganic solids, as exemplified by materials containing three anions1-2 and inorganic materials with unit cells of comparable size to proteins3.
